Tacoma Symphony Orchestra presents
See Change I
Sarah Ioannides, guest conductor
Christopher Burns, double bass
Our friendly and talented principal bassist shows the incredible versatility of the king of string instruments with Nino Rota’s colorful divertimento. The concert will be led by the first of four finalists for the TSO music directorship. Hailed as “a conductor of unquestionable strength and authority” by The New York Times, Sarah Ioannides was named by the Los Angeles Times in 2009 as “one of six female conductors breaking the glass podium.” Ioannides is the current music director of the Spartanburg (SC) Philharmonic and previously served in that post for the El Paso Symphony Orchestra. Past positions include assistant conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony and Cincinnati Pops and music director of the Cincinnati Symphony Youth Orchestra.
